“Keywords: Interdisciplinary Roundtable Conversations” is a series inspired by the innovative interdisciplinary scholarship promoted by the Center for the Study of Social Difference. The series draws participants together from a wide range of disciplinary homes in order to explore the various ways we think about fundamental critical/theoretical ideas and to generate new vocabularies and new methodologies. The WGSS Council is a network of leaders from centers, institutes, and initiatives at Columbia University dedicated to women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.
